Transport Scotland’s Low Carbon Travel and Transport Challenge Fund is now open for Round 2 applications. Energy Saving Trust administers the fund on behalf of Transport Scotland.
Public, community and third sector organisations can apply for funding under the European Regional Development Fund 2014-2020 Programme to facilitate the delivery of active travel and low carbon transport hubs.
Following the first round of funding awards, there remains £2.25 million of uncommitted ERDF funds to invest in projects from the Highlands and Islands (H&I) area and £2.15 million of ERDF funds for projects from the Lowlands and Uplands (LUPS) area of Scotland. Transport Scotland (TS) is also making available a limited amount of funding - up to £1 million - to support a proportion of the funding requirements of projects, subject to its 2018/19 budget being confirmed.
Transport Scotland has made the following changes to the criteria for the second funding call:
